The Jets have signed free agent linebacker Jamari Lattimore, agent Tony Agnone tells Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (Twitter link). We heard two weeks ago that Lattimore was paying a visit to New York to meet with the Jets.
Lattimore spent the last four seasons with the Packers, playing in 49 regular season contests for the team. Playing on a one-year RFA tender in 2014, the 26-year-old earned 285 defensive snaps and played on special teams before landing on injured reserve, prematurely ending his season. Lattimore had 37 tackles and an interception for the year.
The Jets have signed plenty of defenders in free agency over the last few weeks, though most of those new additions are either defensive backs – such as Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie, and Buster Skrine – or defensive lineman, like Stephen Bowen and Kevin Vickerson.
